  1. There seems to be a general sentiment in Chicago right now of relief that the Games never came here. But I have to wonder "what if"... Given the current mood in the U.S. with regards to politics, race relations, and economic challenges, do you think Chicago would be handling things well for a 2016 Olympics?
  2. 100 years from now... What kind of Sports Tech do you think will be employed in future Olympic Games? How much will it influence sport in the modern world? What do you imagine the Games to look like in 2100 and beyond?
  3. I am now a resident of Tulsa!!!

      hahahahaha, the devil is inside his body just because he moved to Tulsa?! hahahaha

  4. I actually want LA to bid for 2024. They will not win, and that could stave off a winter bid for 2026. Then maybe another U.S. city can swoop in for 2028 or 2032 and has a better chance at winning. LA doesn't seem to mind bidding (and losing), plus it gives an argument for another U.S. city when they bid - "we gave you our top three cities, and you have turned them all down... please, pretty please pick us!!!" In other news, Chicago is moving forward with plans to build a new arena that would have been nice should they have won 2016. See pictures here
  5. Ethiopia, Australia, Costa Rica, Peru, Thailand and India... the next 12 months are going to be fun!

      2 goals in 17 seconds to come back and win it! Yep, pretty spectacular!!

  7. I think Melbourne or Brisbane have better chance than Perth to be the next host from Oz. I think the earliest bid should be for 2040 or beyond. Just my own opinion though....
  8. You won't believe where I am moving in less than three months.... TULSA!!!

      Oh well, have fun won' you!

  19. I would not want an American city bidding if Tokyo wins 2020, and both Paris and Durban bid for 2024. I don't see the U.S. having much of a chance in that race.
  20. Watching the U.S. Olympic Trials is getting me psyched for London!
